Software Library

The Internet Archive Software Library is the ultimate software crate-digger's dream: Tens of thousands of playable software titles from multiple computer platforms, allowing instant access to decades of computer history in your browser through the JSMESS emulator.

The intention is to ultimately have most major computer platforms available; currently, the collection includes the Apple II, Atari 800, and ZX Spectrum computers. In each case, sub-collections contain vast sets of disk and cartridge images. Genres include games, applications, utilities, demos and operating systems.

To see a curated set of these many programs, with contextual descriptions and information, visit the Historical Software Collection, curated by the Internet Archive's Jason Scott. If you'd like to volunteer to help describe and increase knowledge on disks in the Software Library, contact Jason at jscott@archive.org.

Spelling Test is a single player game which drills you on spelling. A word is displayed and you must then re-type the word with correct spelling. As you type the word the game checks letter by letter if it is being spelled correctly. If you choose a wrong letter you have three tries at fixing it before the game helps you. Once you are done the game displays what letters in the word you got wrong for review.
